Western Star and Daimler Truck Financial are extending a program that offers discounts on new trucks to U.S. and Canadian military veterans through 2018.
The Western Star VetStar Military Appreciation Program, launched in 2017, offers U.S. military veterans up to a $2,000 match on a down payment on a new Western Star truck financed through DTF. Canadian veterans are eligible for a $3,000 Canadian match on a down payment through DTF.
The VetStar program applies to all new Western Star models and is intended for owner-operators and small fleets. Glider kits and used trucks are not eligible.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
